  1. Soak the skewers in cold water for 30 minutes to prevent them from burning on the barbecue.
  2. De-seed and chop the tomato. Juice and zest the lime.
  3. To make the salsa, dry fry or grill the chillies until charred. Place in a small bowl and cover with cling film. When cool, remove the skin and seeds and chop the flesh corsely. Place in a bowl and mix with the lime zest and juice, sugar, oil, mint and tomatoes.
  4. Thread a prawn, a piece of pineapple and a piece of halloumi onto each skewer. Repeat once more, finishing each skewer with a prawn.
  5. Grill or barbecue until the prawns are cooked through and the pineapple and cheese are slightly charred, about 5-8 minutes.
  6. Serve with a drizzle of salsa.
